but other 'll other agencies and the san francisco county records office requires valid id before they issue a identification card so this standards not unique to the police department. it's used in other government agencies as well. regarding the marijuana card. that's kind of an issue. the appellant did get a state of california medical marijuana identification card. we don't accept that as valid identification. why? it's not on the board now but you see it's it has a photo and id number. that's it. so it has a website there. if you run the id number it comes back and it just says "valid". that's not sufficient government identification. also the department of public health accepted the appellant's expired california id as proof of identity, so the police department will not be able to accept that. in fairness to the public as a valid identification . in conclusion the police department asks this commission to deny the appeal or in the alternative continue this hearing to allow the appellant to arrange for valid government identification submitted. i will answer any questions

with [speaker not understood], san francisco county transportation authority and so on and so forth. but i want to bring to your attention is that i take public transportation. so, i really know what is happening when i take muni. * what we need to be very leery that all the tools that we have on our buses are some standard and in place. so, when we say we have cameras on our buses, we better have cameras on our buses. do not listen to anybody who states -- gives you some statistics on some incidents when their system itself has no standards. in other words, when somebody speaks, they can talk the talk. but to walk the walk you need empirical data. you need to have it vetted. so, i know a lot about the stats that the san francisco public -- the san francisco police department has. i know too much about it. those are my qualifications with incidents for having worked with the united states park police. but let me say to you all categorically, if you say you have cameras on our muni buses, they better be there. they better be there. that's all i want to say. thank you very much. >> thank you. ne

but not yet mentioned is the local community, so in the city and county of san francisco, i really want to acknowledge and there are some community members with us here today. we are aspiring to be good neighbors in mission bay. and so i really want to acknowledge, community members who have partnered with ucsf and the city and county of san francisco as we have grown mission bay and thought about how this development could be an asset to the neighborhood. the second group of people that i want to acknowledge, again, looking up, i see a lot of faces, the faculty, the staff, and the trainees at ucsan francisco are the reason and the anchor tenant and i have not referred to as that before and we are pleased and i hope that we attract great things to the tee and county city and county of san francisco and so i want to acknowledge all of my colleagues who are here with us this morning and finally and most importantly the reason that all of us do this is to improve human health and so the patients who have been fitted from the work we do here at ucsan francisco, and even more importantly th
prevention services. and we are proud to launch this first forum in the county of san francisco and particularly here at the hall of justice. today we have an array of presenters and keynote speeches. and district attorney opening the forum and we will have a forum by the chief and our own mayor. today we want to explain a little bit of background how this panel came about. the forum was an effort that was designed a year ago. with many key stakeholders that are present here today. the attempt was to begin bridging the dialogue between criminal justice agencies and community-based organizations. so there a strong attempt to try to help a population that is mostly impacted right now by criminal justice. by violence in general in our community. the 18-24-year-old population. today is one of the many conversations we hope. and we want to be sure that we strive and communicated to the community as a whole. that this community that we see of the rates we see that relate to this population. given this harsh reality in our city and county. many of the city departments decided to come t
for same-sex spouses and domestic partners who work for the city and county of san francisco. currently city employees with same sex spouses or domestic partners elected to add their spouse or domestic partner to the health plan and additional federal tax is taken out of their paycheck. the federal government views health insurance coverage provided by same sex or domestic partners employers to be taxable income. therefore city employees in these situations are taxed more than other city employees simply because their spouse is of the same gender. this discrimination in our federal tax code has cost individuals affected by this tax thousands and thousands of dollars each year. and the number of city and county of san francisco active members with same sex spouses and domestic partners is close to 400. san francisco has always been a leader in supporting our lgbt community. following the example of other municipalities such as cambridge, massachusetts, private employers such as google, who have already shown leadership on this issue and stood with our lgbt community, today we're asking t
is most certainly not a valley, but the two groups said last night they consider san francisco county, san mateo county and, of course, santa clara county to be silicon valley. they're even adding in parts of the east bay in santa cruz county. i'm curious what you think. you can send us your thoughts on facebook page. that south bay gained more than 42,000 jobs in the past year. that's an astounding number. 15,000 in san francisco. look at it this way. more jobs added than there are people living in the entire city of cupertino. jobs, yes, but maybe not as much money. incomes in the bay area, according to that same report, still below where they were before the recession. the lowest they've been in 11 years. for some families it's actually getting worse. the study says hispanics and african-american families saw their incomes fall significantly. whites and asian gained but only about 2%. back to you. >> thank you, scott. >> scott, thanks a lot. it's that time of year here in the bay area that if you don't like the weather, just wait 24 hours and it's going to be different. >
and not consistent with other counties and it's not just cal doj but how they're reporting san francisco numbers and it's not like every county has this problem and i think it will be remedied in the future and how the numbers compare and does it make sense with the other counties? >> do all of the counties collect the dat at same way as san francisco? >> my guess is no. >> if you're going to comparein and i know some other county doesn't collect it like this. i mean you have different processes. i am talking about county by county comparison. i'm know not dealing with the feds and if everyone was using the same process. >> it emseemed like there were differences between the county scption how they collect data and with local pressures or whatnot but the cal department of justice has the expect 19 ethnicities that they do collect and the same ones in the sheriff's system and those are the ones that we plan to use so we have between the three entities -- so it makes sense that the other counties in california anyway use the 19 ethnicities. whether they are or not i don't know. >> makes sense bu
presentation. on your slide on page 5 you compare san francisco with santa clara county. just want to make sure that we're talk about an apples-to-apples comparison. how are these domestic violence units in each structure? are they structured in similar way? are there any staff borrowed from other parts the d.a.'s o ffice to handle workload compared to santa clara county? could you give us more detail on that? >> i appreciate that question, supervisor avalos, the reason why we picked santa clara, there was a number of reasons. no. 1 the workload is similar to us, but also they are the only other county in the bay area that has vertical prosecution and vertical for felonies. what does that mean? when you have a vertical prosecution unit, when you are doing is that you have the attorney that picks up the case from the very beginning takes the case all the way through trial and conviction. when you have a horizontal unit, you have multiple individuals, that may be picking up pieces of the case. somebody may take the case to arraignment. if it's a felony, somebody else may do the preliminary hear
